Moriches Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea Treatments in Moriches

Moriches Sleep Apnea

Moriches Sleep Apnea

Getting a good night’s rest is vital for good health. People normally feel well-rested after a good night’s sleep; however, this is not the case for sleep apnea patients. Patients with sleep apnea feel exhausted even after sleeping for a long period of time. Moriches sleep apnea is a very serious disorder that requires treatment.

If you have symptoms of sleep apnea, you should see an expert dentist like ours at Contemporary Dental Associates to get a sleep study done in order to confirm the Moriches sleep apnea diagnosis. It’s important to get this done so you can be treated as soon as possible. Sleep apnea is a very serious condition in which the patient stops breathing for short periods of time while sleeping. Sleep apnea negatively impacts the patient’s quality of life. It has many troublesome symptoms which include: the cessation of breathing for short intervals while sleeping, choking or gasping for air in the middle of the night, loud snoring and fatigue (even after sleeping throughout the night). While the Gold Standard of Care for sleep apnea is the CPAP machine, many patients aren’t able to tolerate it. The alternative therapy for patients with mild sleep apnea who can’t tolerate the CPAP would be oral appliance therapy. Unfortunately, an oral appliance is not an option for patients with severe sleep apnea. For those who are candidates, the oral appliance works by keeping the airway open while the patients are sleeping, allowing them to breathe throughout the night while they’re sleeping. The oral appliance shifts the jaw into a forward position which prevents the tongue and the soft tissues in the back of the throat from collapsing. Since this keeps the airway open, patients can breathe normally while they sleep. This alleviates their symptoms and they typically wake up feeling much more well-rested as opposed to before treatment.

Mastic Cavity Treatment

Treating Cavities in Mastic

Mastic Cavity Treatment

Mastic Cavity Treatment

Here at Contemporary Dental Associates, the next best thing to preventing a cavity entirely is to treat is early. The effects of plaque, and its hardened form, tartar, create small holes in your teeth, but over time those holes can grow larger. When they do, they put you at greater risk for a bacterial infection inside your tooth, severe pain, the need for root canal therapy, and possibly even the loss of a tooth to an extraction. All of those consequences can be avoided with our Mastic cavity treatment.

Most of the plaque that forms on and between your teeth is removed when you brush after meals and vigorously floss once per day. However, plaque is sneaky. It hides in gum pockets and elsewhere that is out of the reach of your oral hygiene routine. It then hardens into tartar, which cannot be removed with simple brushing and flossing. That’s why we recommend that you come in two times per year for a complete dental exam. As a big part of that, you will get x-rays as needed. Along with a physical and visual inspection of your teeth, this will identify the presence of a tooth decay at the earliest stage possible, making our Mastic cavity treatment as effective as possible. We use various filling materials, including amalgam (metal), which is suitable for back teeth, due to the fact that its strong enough to withstand the force of chewing that those teeth require. We also offer porcelain, composite, and ceramic, all of which are considered to be white fillings or tooth-colored fillings. On front teeth, those that show when you smile and speak, white fillings are ideal. They blend in virtually seamlessly so that it isn’t obvious that you have a filling at all.

Don’t wait until a toothache forces you to come in. Schedule an appointment with us for a six month dental exam. And if you need our Mastic cavity treatment, you’ll find that it’s simple, efficient, and painless.

Dental care in Mastic

Mastic gum disease treatment

Dental care in Mastic

Dental care in Mastic

Maintaining good dental health requires a commitment to a program of both at-home tooth hygiene, and regular checkups and cleanings from a dental professional. Dental care in Mastic has been the mission for the doctors and staff of Contemporary Dental Associates for over 30 years. Our practice prides itself in delivering a comprehensive range of oral care services from the routine to the complete restoration of your teeth. Our first priority has always been providing these services in a compassionate and professional manner, and in educating our patients as to the care of their teeth and in the treatment options available for any problem they encounter to restore their perfectly happy and healthy smile.

While many patients think of dental care in Mastic as related to teeth, the fact is that proper care for the gums is just as important. Our practice strives to educate our patients on preventative gum care and to diagnosing and treating gum (periodontal) diseases. There are many different diseases of the gum, all of which can lead to pain and tooth loss if left untreated. Gingivitis is the most common type of periodontal disease and is caused by the buildup of plague along the gum line. Bacteria can get under the gum line and cause infections and decay. Chronic periodontal disease usually occurs in people over 45 and is characterized by constant inflammation along the gum line, while aggressive periodontal disease is similar but progresses much more rapidly. If left untreated these periodontal diseases can result in bone loss, as well as tooth loss.

Dental care in Mastic gives patients with periodontal disease a number of treatment options, depending on the type and severity of the gum disease. The simplest approach is a non-surgical treatment where our dentists scale the gums and do root planning, in which the roots are carefully cleaned and smoothed to remove the bacteria. Routine maintenance is usually required to keep the gums healthy. For more involved cases our practice may recommend periodontal surgery, the most common type is deep pocket reduction. Other periodontal procedures include crown lengthening used to make the teeth appear longer, soft tissue grafts which can help cover exposed roots and prevent further gum recession. Let us help you keep your gums healthy through an evaluative consultation, call our office to set up an appointment.
